VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - Vicksburg police have charged a security guard with second-degree murder in a fatal shooting at man during a fight at the American Legion Post 3 hall late Saturday night.

Vicksburg police Lt. Sandra Williams reports that Michael Thomas is being held in the Warren County jail on $125,000 bond. She says Thomas is licensed to carry a firearm.

Williams says 27-year-old Michael Robinson died at a hospital from a gunshot wound to the chest. 

Two other men, Morris Anthony Davis and David Matthew Reed, are each charged with two counts of aggravated assault. They are being held on $300,000 bond each.

Police say two bystanders were wounded during the fight at a "birthday party" at the Legion hall.
